Today, AMD�s stock price traded around $8.50, which is a four-year low for the company. The little green chipmaking company that could can be bought today for $4.73 billion in cash. That's 3.6% less than it would've cost a buyer yesterday, which is not a good trend. AMD has good technology. They have vision, they have talent, they have capacity. It just appears very clear that they don't have the cash necessary to bring it all into sharp focus. They're struggling right now, and that could be remedied by a cash infusion from a friendly little buyout.
